Terrifying video captured powerful winds in eastern China ripping the roof off a building, nearly flipping over a lorry and pushing a car into a river.

The dramatic clip was shot in Nantong City in Jiangsu Province on yesterday (April 9).

According to reports, the car driver did not pull the handbrake properly causing the car being pushed forward and falling into the river.

The Nantong Meteorological observatory issued a yellow warning signal (the third strongest level) for winds.
